Alan Pardew may have been dreading this encounter a few weeks ago as his side were out of form and looking like being in a big relegation battle in the Premier League. However, they have won two out of their last three matches and moved away from the bottom three, so they should come into this one with a bit of confidence.
It is going to be a tough evening for the Magpies as they take on a Metalist side that were very impressive in the group stages, taking four points from German side Bayer Leverkusen, who have looked strong in the compeition.
There is no doubt that the Europa League played a big part in Newcastle’s poor first half of the season in the league as they were playing too many games for their injury-hit squad to deal with.
Now though, after their business in the January transfer window and with players coming back to fitness, they look to have a strong squad that can go far in this compeition, as well as maintaining their league status.
Papiss Cisse is likely to be leading the line for Pardew’s men and his performances in recent weeks suggest he is going to have a strong second half of the campaign.
The goals haven’t been coming as much as he would have liked, but the Senegalese is putting in a lot of hard work and will fancy his chances of getting on the score-sheet on Wednesday evening. He is a 6/1 shot to score first.
There is often a special atmosphere at St James’ Park on big European nights and this is sure to be no exception. If the fans can get behind the players, then Newcastle can come out on top here and take a lead to Ukraine with them. You can back a home win at 5/4.
After their performances in the group stages though, Metalist won’t fear anyone in this compeition and can come to Newcastle with confidence high.
They have a fully-fit squad as well as the Ukrainian season is currently in its winter break – which means the players should be fresh and chomping at the bit to get out onto the pitch.
Metalist have been beaten just once in the Europa League so far and that came when qualification was already guaranteed, so they are tough to beat and have the attacking talent to score a goal or two. The visiting outfit do look like being good value for the win as well as they are at 35/13.
The away team know it is going to be tough to come to England and take a positive result back home with them, but as long as they remain in the tie, they then fancy their chances of beating anyone on home soil.
This encounter gets underway from 8.05PM and it might prove to be one of the pick of the fixtures on Thursday evening between two teams that love to attack.
